The Importance of Emily Dickinson (Importance of)

Some brief overview of book

Children’s Literature Crystal Rodriguez Title: The Importance of Emily Dickenson Biography-Intermediate Author: Bradley Steffens Place of Publication: San Diego, CA Date: 1998 Pages: 96 After reading this biography, I am intrigued by Emily Dickenson’s work and would like to read some of her poetry books. What I found most interesting about her was her ongoing struggle with her religious affiliation, or lack thereof. She seemed to be very sure of herself seldom considering joining the faith in which her friends and family belonged.

Why she spent 20 years of her life insider her house is also a mystery. I personally thought she had some sort of mental disorder, which the author alludes to eventually. Poetry is so beautiful and so personal.

I enjoy writing poetry and have since I was a teenager. Emily’s style of writing is inspiring because she didn’t follow the rules. Some people criticized her work while others noted the true individualistic quality.

Reading some of her short excerpts in this book makes me want to read more, not only of her work, but of others. It makes me think that maybe I could expand my knowledge and style into something more complex. Poetry can almost be like journaling.

It appears Emily used her poetry as self reflection and sometimes therapeutically. When you compare her with other poets who were trying to make a name for themselves, she was truly the opposite. Her work was meant for only certain eyes to see, some not meant for any eyes but her own.

I almost questioned ethically whether her work should have been published. Of course it has brought so much inspiration and literature experience for others, but it wasn’t her wish. It’s an interesting debate to ponder.
